Rapid Flush– The Best Root Control Service in Grand Rapids, MI

Grand Rapids, Michigan is a vibrant city with a rich history and a diverse range of neighborhoods. Known for its art, culture, and the stunning Grand River that flows through the city, it’s also home to a large number of trees and other vegetation. These trees, while adding beauty and character to the city, can sometimes cause problems for the city’s infrastructure, particularly the sewer system. Tree roots can infiltrate sewer pipes, causing blockages, backups, and even pipe breakage. This is why root control services are crucial in Grand Rapids. These professionals use various methods to remove or inhibit the growth of tree roots in sewer lines, helping to maintain the integrity of the city’s sewer system and prevent costly repairs.

What We Offer

Welcome to Rapid Flush, where we take pride in being one of the only State of Michigan-certified companies that applies Vaporooter, a foaming herbicide trusted by over 2,200 municipalities across the United States, to tackle residential sewer and septic lines. While most drain cleaning services merely cut roots within your drains, we understand that this is only a temporary fix. Instead, we go the extra mile by utilizing Vaporooter to eliminate and prevent root regrowth, all without harming your precious trees.

Rest assured, we prioritize the responsible use of chemicals. Our highly-trained team takes every precaution to ensure the utmost care for you, your family or business, and the environment. This commitment is evident in our diligent approach to treatment, application, and proper disposal of any chemicals involved.

What To Expect

To ensure effective eradication of roots from sewer or drain lines, our team utilizes a video inspection camera and a high-pressure water jet equipped with a specialized root-cutting nozzle. By surgically removing and blasting out all roots within the pipe, we prevent their regrowth. To further enhance the treatment, we apply Vaporooter, a foaming chemical herbicide that kills any root it encounters. Its fumigant properties enable it to eliminate even roots not directly contacted, extending its effectiveness up to 5-7 feet away from the pipe’s exterior. As part of our services, the experts at Rapid Flush will conduct a follow-up televise of the line after 6 months to examine your pipes’ integrity and ensure no root regrowth has occurred. In the rare event of any living roots being detected during this inspection, we will gladly provide a complimentary second application of the foaming herbicide.
